The discovery of additional evidence
that seemed to point directly toward George
Gray as the one who took the money from
a Miss Fisher of the Theatre Coinique, and
also some jewelry about ten days ago from
Miss Laura Lee, induced Officer McTigue

ma'urer deliberation it was decided to re
lease the prismer and leave hira to the ten

-Lsnra Hamilton, a colore' denizen of

"cussed on do street eva day ob do

Sergeant W. II. Riy returned several
days ago from St. Louis, where he went
principally to induce the department to re
lieve him from further service at this point.
He intended to get away from here by the
10:h proximo, but it seems that it will be
fully u month before the department will be
able to "relieve him. Sergeant Ray has
been with. us so long that citizens have
come to look upon him ss a permanent
citizen and his depirture will be generally
resetted. He, too, is well satisfied with
the people and h s burroun lings here. Per
haps the principal reason fur his desire to
change is that the duties of his office here,
which would keep two men almost con
st mtly employed, have devolved most of
ti e ti in upon himself alone. Besides this,
Mrs. Rsy prefers to reside further east.
A great fi x 1 is expected in the Mis-sis-i
pi by St. Louisans. Tho signal ser
vice concurs in the belief. It is thought
that the river will reach a higher stage at
S'. Louis than it las done for many year?.
If these expectation come true, the farmers
in the bottoms will be the principal suffer
ers. Even now many a field of rich wheat
is threatened with inundation by the rising
waters and if tho rise continues a foot or
eight inchws, the result! of months of hard
labor and the hopes of a summer's profits
will be dashed to naught. As yet this
county mffers nothing from high water
and it may not suffer much when the worst
comes, but thero are thousands of acres in
tbe bottom, of the states on either side of

"Say, old fellow, why did riot the report
of our Inst meeting appear iuTnuliuM.lt
tin? siid Sgt. Lily to Bluff, as they
proceeded along Washington avenue, to
Eighth street and Commercial, where a
meeting of tho N. I. L. wan to Ij.j held.
"Well," responded the Sgt., In a grujf
voice, "I was unable to attend th meeting
and the president asked Sgt. Hornblower
to write the thicg up. Ha told lnm ,0
wanteds good account of the affair. Now
the fact id the matter wan, that we had so
few tnnmhers present, that there was not s
quorum. Hornblower said ho couldn't
make bricks without straw; nevertheless
lie did the bust ho could, wrote it up, and
sunt it down to tho offloc; but for some uu
uucounliiblo, reason, It did not appear.''
"Hither a fishing story that," said Hgt.
Lily; "but what is the reason the members
don't attend lately?"
"Well," answered the Sgt. laughing sar
castically, "the trouble is, that they all want
to havo tho principal parts in the play, and,
because it cannot give each man a part,
they get disgusted, and stay away from tho
meetings. I think it would be a good idea
to write to Dim Bonccicnult and ask him
to get up a play for twenty characters, and
give them all leading parts; then every
body would be satisfied."
"That's what's tho matter, heh?" said
Lily. "Well, I think wo had better dis
band as soon as tho play is over, on nc
count ot so many of our high-toned mem
bers going east for the summer. But we'll
not disband until we present the play; sink
or swin, live or die, we're bound to give it."
"That speaks well for your pluck" au
swered Bluff; and, still continuing the dis
cussion, they arrived at tho headquarters
for the evening.
The president, having returned from the
east, was present, and called the club to or
der by sounding a new whistle which he
had brought with him from New York.
Tho usual irregularities, by Cushing, were
gono through with. Sgt. Dasher arose and
spoke of the number of invitations that
were to be issued for the play 1800 and
asked how they proposed accommodating
that number at the Cotton Compress. The
vice president was here called to the chair,
and the president made n few remarks.
He said that there were a number of sore
heads in town, who thought that the mem
bers of the N. I. L. imagined that they
were a little better than everyone else. In
point of fact we did so; but wo might as
well invite sstuany as possible to this afftir;
they would not all come, but they would
have less to talk about.
There wa3 some discuision as to whether
the invitations to the play "Tag" should be
printed upon oyster cans of a sipe water
green shade, or upon the coverings of Bo
logna sausage; but the president settled
the matter by saying that he intended tak
ing all the arrangements into his owo
hands, and would thank the members of
the club to keep their suggestions to them
selves. This was, perforce, satisfactory.
Some smiled disparagingly, but an intima
tion that members too fresh in their re
marks would be relegated to the block of
ice, produced a freezing silence. The pres
ident then said that his time was so taken
up with the play, and the rehearsals at five
o'clock in the morning, that he had not
been able to arrange any programme before
hand, except that he had requested one
member to be prepared to read the essay
which he carried round with him. He
would call first upon Sgt. Hornblower, aDd
the gentleman, blushing intensely, played
"Moonlight," one of Beethoven's Sonatas
(side wheel movement ) He got it mixed
with "Moonlight on the Lake," "The order
of Full Moons" (Hairisoo & Hart) and
several other popular and well-known com
pusitiotis. Still, as the silvery waves float
ed upon the tobicco-laden air, the effect
was thrilling in the extreme. Next came
the reading of an essay by Sgt. Frizeout,
entitled "Did Shakespeare save his Bacon?"
The subject was exhaustively treated, be
ing interrupted by the snoring of some of
the members, who saw fit to interpose stops
where none were needed the gentleman
himself attending to that untter at irregu
lar and prolonged intervals. The writer
cited authorities on the history of Billy
Shake, the efforts that were made to steal
the Bacon, his heroic defense of the savory
dish prepared for his nntutinsl repast, his
thrilling cry, ''It is lost!" repeated several
times, wheu loss seemed imminent and his
final victory iu retaining the triumph of
gastronomy. He made some disrespectful
allusions to "the old man," but did not
specify whether lie referred to Billy, the
oi l man of the woods, the man in the
moon, or a man about town. He
introduced the original and highly
entertaining anecdote about Kiug Alfred
ami the burnt cakes; in this
he looked the bun and was greatly applaud
ed by those who kept awake to the end.
After the Ammonia bottle had been paswl
round, in order to bring the assemblage to
their seases, the presideut ordered that the
club listen to tho rest of tho programme
stun ding, in order to show due respect to
those who should contribute to the eveu
ing's enjoyment. Next camo a reading
from Shortfellow, entitled "The V-veering
V vune." It was given in the hurried style
which characterizes Sgt. Blank and tho
beauty of the selection was marred by con
stant repetition of words and by tho gentle
man's genuflections, deflections, and the
reflections of the auditors. The difft
"M arclm Texas Narrow Oaiiirii" was then
rendered in a spirited manner by Sgt.
Swell and Sgt. Lily. Tho club have so
often listened to the Audanto and Crescen
do i.-nhanced by tho Fortissimo of tins
couple, that further coniiuout would bo su
perfluous. As an encore they gave "Fried
Diabolos'' which always hold their own tu
popular favor. Sgt. Rattler then asked
permission to orate. It was accorded, and
ho began as usual "We, sir, have" but
was interrupted by hisses, cries of "can't
give us anything else," "Even a pun would
bo more fun, etc.
Tho Sgt. only talked tho faster, and
somo caught tho words "Bees have their
Queens," but Ihn boys began stamping, to
the word "George Washington -First in
war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his
countrymen." Amid this dire contusion,
some ohh turned nut tho gas, and the as
semblage, in siuoat disorder! maimer, dispersed.
